This colourful sugar free & gluten free dish is one of my favourite healthy dinner recipes – It is SO flavoursome and versatile!
Whether you stick to a vegetarian version or you add some white meat or king prawns/ shrimp. It always tastes lovely.
Prepare the Über Delicious Sauce in advance to save cooking time on the day.
Preferably double the amount so you can freeze some.
Sauce leftovers work beautifully with soba noodles, sea salad and toasted pine kernels or just with steamed asparagus. How is that for a super quick & ultra healthy dinner idea when you next don’t have time to cook?
And if there’s no time to make a separate sauce this time, don’t worry. Just add creamed coconut, a bit of stock, water and mild curry powder to your main Stir Fry in step one ?
The meal itself is enough to feed 2 people happily for 2 meals. So you can either freeze half of it or tomorrow’s dinner is taken care of ?
Step 1 Saute the potatoes in a wok with olive oil and a dash of salt, pepper, tumeric and cayenne pepper until lightly brown.
Step 2 veggie-stir-fry
Add the rest of the washed and chopped vegetables to the potatoes.
Stir it well and let it sit there on a medium heat while you prepare your chicken or chickpeas depending if you opt for the vegetarian or paleo/meaty option.
As soon as the vegetables are done put them aside to free up the wok so you can prepare your Über Delicious veggy sauce
Bring a pot with filtered water to the boil, add a pinch of salt and cook a cup of quinoa or some soba noodles. Bearing in mind that quinoa needs a longer cooking time than soba noodles.
Meanwhile rinse a can of organic chickpeas and add the pulses to the Wok once the vegetables are done to your liking.
If you want you could toast a handful of cashew nuts that you can sprinkle over your meal before serving for an extra protein kick .

Step 4 ueber delicious stir fry
Alternatively you can add a hearty meat component to your lovely stir fry like I have done.
Cut 2 chicken breats in half and lightly fry them in olive oil with the spices you like until they are golden brown. Then add them to your stir fry once the veggies and the sauce are done.
Finally – Fire Your Tastebuds Up with This Über Delicious Sauce
To make your seriously Über Delicious Veggie Sauce you simple stir fry the red onion with the rest of the vegetables in a bit of olive oil and mild curry powder until its tender enough to eat.
Then you boil 500ml of water and dissolve a yeast free stock cube in it, letting it it cool down slightly so you don’t burn yourself when whizzing it up.
Crumble the creamed coconut into the liquid, mixing well until fully dissolved.
Put the vegetables in a blender and add some of the stock. Blend them until the sauce reaches a creamy consistency. Add more stock/ water/ rice milk to adjust the consistency and spice level of your sauce.
Alternatively if there’s no time to make the sauce, just add creamed coconut, a bit of stock, water and mild curry powder to your main Stir Fry in step one ?
Step 6 soba noodles stir fry
Now put all the vegetables and the chicken/ chickpeas back into the Wok and heat it up briefly.
